I am currently a lecturer in Occupational Therapy on a secondment from Cygnet Healthcare with a special interest in female mental health


I am new to joining the Occupational Therapy lecturing team at Cardiff University and look forward to taking a step into the teaching world of academia. I studied at Cardiff University myself and acquired a Post Graduate Diploma in Occupational Therapy in 2014. Since qualifying I have been working for Cygnet Healthcare specialising in female mental health. My interests include the use of sensory strategies within mental health, promoting student well being and providing a supportive and person centred learning environment.
